Answer: 
No, the ion-exchange process is identical for both salts. As a Calcium or Magnesium Ion sticks to the resin, a Potassium (or Sodium) ion is released from the resin and goes into your water.
If anything pound-for-pound, Potassium Salt won't last quite as long as Sodium Salt., Potassium Ions are heaver than Sodium with an atomic weight of 39, vs 32 so Potassium per weight will soften slightly less Read More

But extra potassium ions are definitely better than extra sodium ions for humans, animals and plants, so make sure to consider that factor. Read Less

Answer: 
Thank you for your recent inquiry with The Home Depot, Atticus Since these water softening pellets are only available in select Home Depot stores and not online, you will need to speak with a specialist in your local store to go over special order options.. We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you in the future. Thank you for shopping Home Depot.

Can we get this stuff in crystals instead of pellets? I don't want my softener getting clogged, as some have provided review saying so.

Answer: 
Yes, It works the same as the salt alternatives. It replaces the hard water minerals with a potassium ion, instead of a sodium ion you would get from using salt. A healthier, but more expensive, alternative.

Rated 3.0 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good product Others said they had problems but I also have a separate brine tank and have had no problems February 21, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Best price for Potassium I have been using this product for about 1 year now, I go through about a bag per month. The other reviewers mention it being dirty and clogging up there softener. I am not sure what type of softener they are using but I have a separate brine tank that I empty my bags into and have never had any issues or noticed a bunch of gunk at the bottom. It is true its not pellets, this is definitely large chunk crystals, I actually prefer those for my brine tank as it takes them long to dissolve and the brine water can really absorb it before my softener goes through another cycle. October 15, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible Product This is a terrible product. This potassium pellet leaves so much residual in my water softener tank that I had to pour water into it and used a tube to suck up all the dirty residual. It seems that the manufacturer has no quality control at all. I swear that I will never use it again. This product should be banned from being sold!! I hope HomeDepot will not sell this anymore, and find more other alternatives. August 12, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Clogs the softener Do not buy this brand of potassium chloride. This clogs your system because it is crystals which don't dissolve very well. You need to look for actual pellets or cubes in potassium chloride (this brand only comes in crystals, even if they tell you its pellets). This brand of potassium also leaves alot of residue. Save yourself repairs and the hassle. If you can't find another brand of potassium chloride (Morton is the best), then just use the regular salt/sodium chloride option. In a nutshell this wrecks havoc on your water softener system. February 28, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Needed an alternative I needed an alternative and looked for potassium chloride for my RainSoft Water Softener of 10 years. I just started on my 3rd bag and so far so good. This was the only choice I had from the Home Depot I am closest to and I hope that they will eventually have more products of this nature available to their customers. The price is high but I am guessing it has a lot to do with supply and demand. I am willing to try it out a little longer and for my health's sake. April 13, 2014
